First thing first HELL YES finally i dont have to spend $80-150 on these at ebay. Why is it the same optimus art and on the front you cannot see Ultra Magnus's head. Upon further inspection i see no force chip being mentioned those bastards, Thats HASBRO for you too lazy to do ****. When might this set be relased?:eyebrow:

the evil twin?

Universe with good packaging and i don't think we'd see toys this largew in the universe line. The biggest i'v seen is Nemesis prime and Optimus Primal.

I like this though since i don't have either of these.

and Razorclaw ;)


This magnus looks like the Sam's club version (also TFU) while Prime is just RID

thus another overstock repackaging, lame lame lame

I doubt I'll buy it just for a Cyber Key since I already both of them.
I'm not exactly a big fan of the RiD Ultra Magnus mold and the
Optimus Prime mold was ok but he still isn't exactly one of my favorite versions of Optimus Prime.

I dont think there will be any cyber key in the box, as they are not remolded like Scorponok and those 4 armada TFs

It's good news for me, because I've always wanted these guys since I saw RID.

I didn't pick those guys up the first time around, but I should have, well like someone else pointed out, I won't have to pay through the teeth for them now!

Any chance that someone got the bios for this? Or are we going to have to wait for its release... however it's going to be released? :(

My eyes aren't that good! The numbers look like the RID numbers, though... It's possible that the Bios are the same as well, but I just can't tell from that pic. :P

No explanation for why there are now two radically different Optimus Primes in Cybertron...

"So Energon prime gets rid of all his doo-dads, converts himself into a fire truck after defeating Unicron, Ultra Magus appears out of nowhere, then disappears again in the Cybertron cartoon. Then Prime gets reformatted yet again"

and looks exactly the same as the RID one (minus the black belt)
so, if jetfire saw OP's new form, it would remind him of the one he saw in 'worlds collide'?
also, ultra magnus is a part of his G1 self and a part of his RID self?
